Description

A rich and smooth Saint-Emilion wine

The estate

Château Quintus was born from the union of the Château Tertre Daugay and Château L’Arrosée terroirs, respectively acquired by the family company Domaine Clarence Dillon in 2011 and in 2013. Château Quintus is thus the fifth property of the Domaine Clarence Dillon group, alongside Châteaux Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. The estate takes its name from the Gallo-Roman tradition of naming one's fifth child Quintus.

The vineyard

Château Quintus produces Saint-Emilion wines from a 42-hectare vineyard that enjoys a unique mosaic of terroirs. Aged 30 years on average, the vines are planted on a plateau upon a succession of south-facing limestone layers, as well as on south-facing clay-limestone and gravelly soils at the north of the estate.

The vintage

Wet and stormy spring conditions slowed down the vegetative growth stage. Subsequently, the mild temperatures throughout June and the summer favoured an even flowering and veraison period. The Indian summer in September ensured an optimal ripening of the grapes until the harvest.

Vinification and ageing

Aged in barrels (38% new).

The blend

Merlot (72.3%)
Cabernet Franc (27.7%).
